The things you see at Dupont Circle…

September 26, 2007, 8:19 PM

Here’s why I love working near Dupont Circle. It’s because you never know what you’re going to see. And this isn’t even political – it’s sometimes just downright off the wall. Seriously.

Now coming out of the Metro through Dupont Circle station’s south entrance in the morning, you’ll normally see several people. There’s the guy handing out the Express, the guy handing out the Examiner, you’ll possibly see a person playing music, and sometimes people handing out flyers for the deal-du-jour. Today, there was a guy handing out flyers… wearing a chicken suit. Well, actually, I think he was supposed to be a rooster, based on the appearance. But regardless, there he was. Check it out…

Yes, I love Dupont Circle. You never know what you’re going to see on any given day…

Song: JMU Fight Song, as seen in the credits of the two-part "Welcome to JMU!" video (Part 1 and Part 2). Boy, did that bring back some memories... I love the way these guys made fun of the over-excited and over-caffeinated freshman orientation groupies.
